Celebrate What’s Right with the World

I was fortunate enough to attend a Keep Tennessee Beautiful seminar on Wednesday in Nashville. One of the presenters, Sue Smith of Keep America Beautiful, showed a beautiful film by National Geographic photographer Dewitt Jones called Celebrate What’s Right with the World. While the presentation was to inspire those of us working in the anti-litter movement, I found it inspiring for my personal life now, too. Here are some of the principles of Celebrate What’s Right in the World:

  • Believe it and you’ll see it.
  • Recognize abundance.
  • Look for possibilities.
  • Unleash your energy to fix what’s wrong.
  • Ride the changes.
  • Take yourself to the edge.
  • Be the best for the world.

My two favorites from above are ride the changes and be the best for the world. Under ride the changes, Jones’ comments to “learn to live with uncertainty, yet act with confidence.” That is my new mantra.
